Digestives are the classic British biscuits to dunk into the afternoon tea and they were first produced to aid digestion as they contain baking soda, which is able to neutralise acids.
These cookies are usually prepared with saturated fats, like butter and palm oil, and refined white sugar.
So, today we want to propose this easy recipe to make vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free digestives which you can enjoy at breakfast, on-the-go or, of course, with your afternoon tea.
In fact, these cookies are prepared with rolled oat, nuts, and fruit, all nutritious ingredients which provide fibres, healthy unsaturated fats, vitamins, and minerals.
The gluten-free flour is made from ground rolled oat and mixed nuts
Sugar is replaced with applesauce which is made from cooked apple and it is naturally sweet
Flaxseeds help to bind the ingredients and provide a source of omega-3
These oatmeal digestives are light, crispy, and semi-sweet, perfect for a healthy treat.
